Colonel,

[continuation]....Cheney has made himself one heck of a paper trail for himself, that......that will snag both and his henchmen.

Prez Obama has shown great skill. First, he condemns torture in the campaign. Then, as a new prez, he bans the use of it. Then he releases the Bush-Cheney administration's damning memos in the face of combined efforts on the part of top CIA wonks to stop it. Obama then goes to CIA HQ and tells a cheering crowd of 'their people' that there will be no prosecutions. Meanwhile back at the ranch, the public, fanned by a concerted media campaign, is outraged as his refusal to prosecute [CIA wonks]. Then Prez Obama says that he is not sure what he will do and follows this with the statement that people who break the law must expect to be punished.

I look forward to seeing a perp walk in the works for Tenet, Laughlin, Black, Brennen, and all those who were hand-n-hand involved in the Bush-Cheney administration's cruelty of torture. It's time the 'decision makers' were held accountable for their actions.

"Bush tortured. Bush was a moron. Unless you think you can put Bush behind bars, move on."

Ah, but thats the endgame sir, 8 years down the road. (evil laughter).

Seriously, I hope that the Obama administration doesnt fall to the ploy of going directly up against Cheney right now, but instead continues to go after Yoo and the weaker links, on the pretexts of professional disbarrment. That will make a lot of evidence surface...

I am reminded of the chilling story of Alyssa Peterson, who, when ordered to take part in interrogations that, no doubt, involved what we would call torture, she refused, then killed herself a few days later, in September 2003. A cover-up, naturally, followed.

She killed herself, or she "killed herself"?
